The LittleFoot Elegance Photo offers both the professional astro-photographers, as well as the visual observers a great wealth of functions. Whether it's to shoot perfect Astrophotos, or take an extended star walk. The LittleFoot Elegance Photo is equipped for all these tasks well, and thanks to the intuitive handling the controller is ideal for beginners as well. In addition, the basic version already offers a function scope that you can’t get by other telescope control systems even for a lot of money. Even more, the LittleFoot Elegance Photo has enough potential to also meet demands of growing requirements to new features far into the future.
Of course, the LittleFoot Elegance Photo supports the LX200 protocol, and it can be used with almost any planetarium programs such as CdC, The Sky, or Guide.
We have extensively tested the telescope control.
With the huge range of functions and the precision the LittleFoot Elegance Photo is unique on the Astro market!
A particularly important point when buying a product is the question: How will the product be maintained and updated?
The LittleFoot Elegance Photo is a ultra-modern stepper motor controller and since it is an ongoing project where almost every day work on extensions and improvements is done, the control software is developed by a large group of software developers, only rarely several months without improvements and/or extensions will pass by. This guarantees that you own a modern and well maintained high-end product even tomorrow!
Of course, in the LittleFoot Elegance Photo only components from current production are used. In addition, we like to point to our RoHs declaration.
